    There’s just a huge difference between calling someone a Nazi or commie and calling a politician they prop up or defend a Nazi or commie or fascist or socialist let’s just break it down to the simplest comparisons being there are good people and bad people. It’s really that simple without the Hatfield McCoy feuding

    Keep gaslighting. Try reading what the actual people responsible have said. I can't force you to believe anything. Have fun being on the wrong side of history though. Bye.

    Texas Republicans voted down a proposal to not associate with Nazis or Holocaust deniers. Can't make Nazis unwelcome.

    Texas law bans all abortion with severe criminal penalties. Supposedly there are medical exceptions but law is so vague and penalties so severe doctors are reluctant to provide abortions even in extreme cases. Twenty women filed class action suit. All had medical emergencies and/or nonviable fetuses but were denied medically necessary abortions. Lead plaintiff a woman whose water broke early. No chance for fetus to survive, but as long as there was a fetal heartbeat doctor could not terminate pregnancy. The woman waited in hospital parking lot with amniotic fluid running down her legs. Became septic. Finally fetal heart stopped and doctor could terminate pregnancy. She needed multiple surgeries as a direct result of delays and is now infertile. Texas attorney general Ken Paxton, a long time woman hater, argued she did not have standing to sue, because she is infertile and therefore won't need an abortion in future. Also she should have challenged the law while in medical emergency,not after. So while going septic she should have taken time to file a lawsuit.

    Also in Texas court ruled another woman with nonviable pregnancy that threatens her life be allowed an abortion. Woman hater Paxton has threatened civil and criminal penalties against any doctor who performs the abortion and the hospital where procedure occurs.

    Read this twice. Then try to pretend forced birthers motivated by something other than hating women.

    Iowa lawmaker calls for Gov. Kim Reynolds to remove satanic display from Capitol

    A satanic display placed in the Iowa Capitol is unconstitutional, says an eastern Iowa lawmaker who is calling on Gov. Kim Reynolds to order its removal.

    In the Dec. 8 edition of his Sherman Liberty Letter, Rep. Brad Sherman, whose district covers Iowa County and part of Johnson County, also calls "for clarifying legislation to be adopted in accordance with our State Constitution that prohibits satanic displays in our Capitol building and on all state owned property."

    He proposes additional legislation to clear the way for displaying the Ten Commandments in all state buildings, including the Capitol, and in Iowa public schools.

    But Sherman, a pastor, may not have wholehearted support of his initiative from other Republican legislators, some of whom say they would oppose the government limiting freedom of speech in reaction to the display, which will be in place for a total of two weeks.

    Sherman: Iowa Constitution endorses God, and Satan is his enemy

    The controversy began bubbling last week after a group that calls itself the Satanic Temple of Iowa, though it lists no physical location on its Facebook page, placed with state permission a small altar on the first floor of the Capitol. It displays what are described online as the "seven fundamental tenets" of Satanism, including the statement that "the freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend."

    Completing the display are the temple's seal, electric candles and a caped figure representing the pagan idol Baphomet, holding a ribbon-bedecked pentangle and topped with a gilded ram's head.

    Sherman says the exhibit has drawn widespread "outrage and disgust" among Iowans, "but few people think there is much that can be legally done about it because of free speech and freedom of religion."

    "However," he adds, "I disagree."

    He points to the preamble to the Iowa Constitution, which says, "WE THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF IOWA, grateful to the Supreme Being for the blessings hitherto enjoyed, and feeling our dependence on Him for a continuation of those blessings, do ordain and establish a free and independent government, by the name of the State of Iowa... ."

    "According to these opening lines of our Constitution, the foundation for laws and continued blessing and success in Iowa is based on these points: 1. There is One Supreme God. 2. Blessings over this state come from the One Supreme God. 3. We must depend upon the One Supreme God if we want to enjoy continued blessings," Sherman writes.

    He says it is "a tortured and twisted interpretation of law that affords Satan, who is universally understood to be the enemy of God, religious expression equal to God in an institution of government that depends upon God for continued blessings."

    Nativity to be installed at Capitol this week
    Some other Iowans who have viewed the display were likewise offended.

    "I'm here today because this is so anti-Christian, so anti-Iowa," Evelyn Nikkel, a Christian praying in the Capitol rotunda, said last week.

    Nikkel said a Nativity will be coming to the Capitol at noon Tuesday and then Iowans can see the "real reason for the season." Iowa Sen. Cherielynn Westrich, a Republican representing Ottumwa and Albia, affirmed the plan on Facebook.

    State Rep. Jon Dunwell, R-Newton, on X, the social platform formerly known as Twitter, and on Facebook has tried to explain why the display was allowed. He's experienced considerable blowback in response, though he says that as an ordained minister and "as a follower of Christ, I certainly find a display from the Satanic Temple objectionable."
